Dutch company VDL Nedcar has not received an order for the production of a new MINI Countryman from BMW, which owns the British brand.
Recall that at this Dutch plant, the production of Countryman has been carried out since 2016. BMW stressed that the reason for making this decision was the coronavirus pandemic.
Representatives of the company in the Netherlands emphasize that the German automaker announced plans to launch production of the updated Countryman at a factory in Germany.
Recall that the Countryman model has undergone an interim update this year, and the new generation of the cross will be demonstrated only in a few years. In turn, Countryman is also produced at the German company’s plants in countries such as India, Malaysia and Indonesia.
It is worth saying that the MINI Countryman is the first MINI with a 5-door body under the auspices of BMW. The debut of this car took place in March 2010. At the same time, sales of the model started in September of the same year.
